Summaries for SLC33A1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLC33A1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is required for the formation of O-acetylated (Ac) gangliosides. The encoded protein is predicted to contain 6 to 10 transmembrane domains, and a leucine zipper motif in transmembrane domain III. Defects in this gene have been reported to cause spastic paraplegia autosomal dominant type 42 (SPG42) in one Chinese family, but not in similar patients of European descent. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010]

GeneCards Summary for SLC33A1 Gene

SLC33A1 (Solute Carrier Family 33 (Acetyl-CoA Transporter), Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene.

  • Spastic paraplegia 42, autosomal dominant (SPG42) [MIM:612539]: A form of spastic paraplegia, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. Rate of progression and the severity of symptoms are quite variable. Initial symptoms may include difficulty with balance, weakness and stiffness in the legs, muscle spasms, and dragging the toes when walking. In some forms of the disorder, bladder symptoms (such as incontinence) may appear, or the weakness and stiffness may spread to other parts of the body. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19061983, ECO:0000269 PubMed:25402622}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Congenital cataracts, hearing loss, and neurodegeneration (CCHLND) [MIM:614482]: An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by congenital cataracts, severe psychomotor retardation, and hearing loss associated with decreased serum ceruloplasmin and copper. Brain MRI shows cerebral and cerebellar atrophy and hypomyelination. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22243965}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
